If the events of the world in the past few weeks have taught us anything, it is that we need to be flexible since life is ever-changing. Life tends to change at every step of the way, whether it’s financially, environmentally or culturally. Here are some things you can implement to feel more in control of your life.

Don’t let your thoughts turn dark

Probably the most important thing you can do to be content in your life is to not let your thoughts wander into dark places. We have all had bad memories creep in when we are lonely, tired, angry or sad. If you find yourself in that place, grab a bucket of popcorn, put on a comedy, and take a nap.

Make small improvements in your life every day

All it takes is one small step to move forward in your life. It could be something as small as cleaning out your junk drawer or sorting your laundry, but it will definitely impact your life positively.

Spend more time just being rather than thinking or doing

Balance is key which is why you should spend a little time each day making your inner life better because that will have an amazing effect on the outer stuff as well.

Keep your body moving

If you have stairs in your home, try and use the washroom upstairs which would ensure that you climb a couple of flights a few times a day. Taking walks outdoors is great too. If you drive to the office, try parking at the back of the lot, so there’s a good walk in and out. You can also take the stairs in your office building.

Be more mindful of what you eat

At least swear off soda of any kind. If you enjoy drinking carbonated beverages, try sparkling or flavoured water. There is no question that eating better gives you more energy.

Keeping busy is one of the keys to contentment

Generally speaking, the person who has too much to do, is far less stressed than someone who doesn’t have enough going on. So do what’s in front of you and if you can’t think of anything, pick up a book and build your brain.
